Hirota, Joji; London Taiko Drummers

Joji Hirota’s prolific career spans over thirty years and sixteen albums, sculpting dynamic landscapes of rhythm and haunting melodies with the themes of nature and the beauty in every-day life. Since receiving a commendation from the UK Japanese Embassy from Ambassador Orita in 2003 for his contribution to Japanese culture overseas through his musical activities, he has continued to work on a vast number of diverse projects, and with his recent Beyond the Requiem charity concert tours with the London Metropolitan Orchestra in the UK and Japan, has strived to make a difference by supporting the people affected by the Earthquake disaster of 2011 through music. The music featured on this release was used in the recent Martin Scorsese film “Silence,” released in 2017.
